What is the TUTOR Project?

The TUTOR project is a 36-month project with the goal to develop a European and international outlook in teacher education on inclusivity.

The TUTOR project aims to create partnerships between teacher education and training providers to set up Teacher Academies, developing a European and international outlook on teacher education. These Academies embrace inclusivity in education, and contribute to achieving the objectives of the European Education Area. 

In particular, the project addresses the need for tutors to develop their basic abilities to understand, analyse and develop strategic responses to the diversity in their classroom to promote a more inclusive learning environment. 

Overall, the TUTOR project fosters a more inclusive environment, open to migrant, LGBTQI+, and socioeconomically disadvantaged students, with a particular focus on safeguarding the elements of tolerance, acceptance, and inclusion.

Who are the TUTOR Project’s target groups?

The TUTOR project focuses on three main target groups: 

  • Secondary Education Teachers coming from the 4 main implementing countries (Greece, Ireland, Austria, Turkey) looking to update their skills. 
  • Students from LGBTQI+ community, students with migrant/refugee background, and socio-economically disadvantaged students. 
  • Policy-makers working in Ministries, Local & Regional authorities, EU bodies, and other official stakeholders with the ability to influence policies, and wishing to make changes at an EU and national level towards the creation of more inclusive learning experiences.

What are the objectives? 

Over 36 months, the TUTOR project aims to:

  • Contribute to the improvement of teacher education policies and practices in Europe by creating networks and communities that bring together providers of secondary teacher education and providers of continuing professional development, and other relevant actors (such as ministries) and stakeholders to develop a Train the Trainers approach, focused on inclusivity in learning.
  • Define a forward-looking and upskilling strategy for secondary school teachers.
  • Enhance the European dimension and internationalisation of teacher education through innovative and practical collaboration and by sharing experiences for the further development of teacher education in Europe.
  • Foster holistic inclusivity in the learning environment, covering all its aspects such as tolerance, non-discrimination, flexibility, etc.
  • Assess current and future skill mismatches in the targeted (teaching) profession.
  • Disseminate widely all project products & maintain them after project closure (exploitation).
